News flash: garden birds relieve pain!

Dear all, first of all, no they don't really! But I was thinking this morning, having done my range of movement exercises next to the patio doors, how having a bad time with RA has had one good outcome for me. I have been unable to do much at all for the past few weeks, but I have been able to look into the garden and watch all the fledgling sparrows and finches learn how to fly. It has been an endless source of pleasure in a pretty grim couple of weeks. I am so glad I have found this site, it gives me the opportunity to share the good as well as the bad. Wishing you all a pain free day, and some cheeky sparrows to cheer you up!

I had the opposite , went in the garden and a beautiful sparrow hawk was dead. I guess it flew into my conservatory. So it's going for research purposes in a box to a Uni! At present in the freezer argh ( too much detail?)

But my sparrows will be sleeping well tonite!

Just don't get those freezer bags mixed up.... Otherwise the university could be investigating the first frozen chicken in history which flew into a conservatory, and you could be having a very gamey supper!

There's a family across the road from us that rescue owls and I love the sounds they make during the night.

We also seem to have local cat wars every other night. Mixed in with the owl hoots it's not so relaxing!

Ooo! I'm pretty certain it's the Owls but I'll have to listen out tonight just to make sure. I'll let you know.
